it was amazing
Read in March, 2011

Everyone should read this... even if you don't agree with everything Speth says (I don't - not everything), he'll challenge you to live more consciously and sustainably (the world is ours, not yours..!?) but also more freely. He acknowledges that "More and more people sense at some level that there's a great misdirection of life's energy." And I like his inclusion of Wendell Berry's "Manifesto":

Expect the end of the world. Laugh.
Laughter is immeasurable. Be joyful
though you have considered all the facts.
